The Best Fall Road Trips

Lately, I've been sharing several pictures of fall colors taken during past road trips. Doing some research into the topic, I found an MSNBC article about where to find the best fall color. The article is two years old, but most of the links are still useful and I found several new places I'd like to visit in the fall. Here are my favorites:

"A Pennsylvania autumn is one you'll never forget"
The tagline from Fall in PA is backed up by some beautiful pictures of fall colors throughout the state of Pennsylvania. The site shares where to go when with their fall foliage report. More information on hiking and biking trails, driving routes, and special destinations will make your experience even better.

"Discover the Asheville Autumn Experience"
Explore Asheville also has a fall color report on its site. Suggestions for scenic drives and other activities are provided, as well as a page listing visitor favorites for foliage views.

"Experience Ozark Fall Foliage"
The Fall Foliage Report at Fall in the Ozarks starts October 15th this year. This site has information on hiking and biking trails, scenic drives and several tips to help you plan your trip to the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas and Missouri.

No fun tagline, but a lot of good information
Yankee Magazine has tips for fall colors in New England on Yankee Foliage. The site has daily color reports, foliage forums for different states, a foliage blog, and suggestions for scenic drives and fall events in New England.

If you have a favorite fall road trip, please share it with us in the comments. Thank you!
